Personal Trainer Overview

A variety of programs are offered based on what each individual client needs. Whatever your goals and personal health history, you will be given a custom program to help you. Nutrition-Based on your body type you will be given a list of foods and some recipes to choose from. The goal is to help you make healthier choices and still enjoy a lot of the foods you like to eat. With guidance you can even still eat at a lot of your favorite restaurants! Post-Rehab - It is a misconception that if you are injured or have had a heart attack or stroke that you are unable to exercise. Nothing could be further from the truth! With the proper guidance and your physician's approval you can perform many safe exercises that can strengthen and help your recovery and help get you back to your normal functions Pre/Postnatal- Women who exercise before & during pregnancy get many benefits including relief from back pain, easier and quicker deliveries, and quicker recovery after giving birth. Weight loss -Target and blast that fat the right way. There are too many programs out there that promise fast weight loss but produce unhealthy body composition. You can appear to be thin and still be at high risk for heart attacks, high blood pressure and diabetes along with many other problems associated with improper body composition. Tightening & Toning - Perhaps you just need to gain a little muscle or need a little tweaking. You can get that too. We also offer group exercise classes. Check out our class schedule to see if there are any in your area. If not then let us know. We would be happy to start one! NEW!

Training Philosophy

I believe in treating each of my clients as an individual so all of their programs are tailored to them. I don't use generic "cookie cutter" workouts. I also believe that a strong body starts with a strong core(Abdominals/Lower Back) so I make sure I start all my clients off with a good core program.
